Chris Schantz, a Program Manager with aerospace and defense technology company Northrop Grumman Corporation, is the newest member of The Arc Baltimore’s Board of Directors.

Schantz brings a strong background in project management and leadership experience in several key functional roles – including Supply Chain & Operations, Contracts, and Financial Management – to his new role as a member of The Arc Board.

“With a proven track record in achieving operational efficiencies for Northrop Grumman, Chris possesses both the experience and the skills to help strengthen and broaden the mission and vision of The Arc and drive impact in the communities we support,” says Kathleen McNally Durkin, The Arc Baltimore’s Chief Executive Officer.

Schantz was elected to The Arc Baltimore Board during the organization’s 2022 Annual Meeting and Awards Ceremony, which also featured the election of new officers and award recognitions for those who have gone above and beyond in their service to The Arc. The organization previously announced that Robbie Thompson, an Assurance Senior Manager for EY, had been elected to its Board of Directors.

“The hard work and dedication of all of our Board members, our award recipients and nominees, and so many others is the critical component which enables The Arc Baltimore to support people with developmental disabilities to lead fulfilling lives with a sense of belonging, purpose, and meaningful relationships,” Durkin notes.

Schantz currently lives and works in Sykesville, MD with his family and two children. When not working or volunteering in the community, he enjoys golfing, hiking, and outdoor activities with his family.
